Learn to dive at Vobster





A WORLD OF DIVING
ADVENTURE AWAITS...


Vobster Quay offers high quality SCUBA training, trips and skill development for divers of all levels. It will be as much a privilege to guide your first steps into the world of diving as it will be to introduce you to extended range diving, or mentor you as a rebreather or technical instructor. Our aim is to create safe, skilled divers who will enjoy diving our oceans, lakes and rivers.

We offer a full range of recreational diving courses from the world's largest and most respected diver training agency - PADI.

We also offer technical, extended range and instructor training from IANTD, the original technical agency.

Call us to discuss finding the course that's right for you. We can provide training for relaxed holiday diving in the Red Sea to deep wreck expeditions.

Once qualified, join one of our many Vobster Quay trips. We organise guided diving days, weekend trips and week-long expeditions to UK South coast, Scotland, Malta, Norway, France, Egypt and more. From 'critter watching' to exquisite reefs and historic shipwrecks, we'll guide you as you apply your skills and knowledge to achieve your ambitions. Every dive has a story to for you to discover.

We understand divers learn at different rates. Our professional instructors and divemasters have long experience of diver training, meaning we can tailor a programme to match how you learn best.

We strive to deliver courses and trips that are a cut above the rest, ensuring you learn to dive in a friendly, fun and - above all - safe environment.
